I came to the forums expecting to see a happy community....lol.

Too many world of warcaft comparisons, I personally never played the game, but at the same time im not in to treasure trolls and warlocks and what not unless its an elder scrolls game or something.

I think this is a great game. I have been having fun, and the story is top of the line for a massively multiplayer game.
It's like people dont appreciate **** anymore, so they made it free and people still can't appreciate it.

Like, so much hating to the point where it seems like most of the people on this site simply play games all day and nit pick at what they DONT like about it.

If you dont like it disappear; nobody will care or remember you. Its not Bioware's fault that you paid for the game and continue to play it with a recurring fee. I think is *********** retarded that you continue to pay for a game you loath so much.

Trust me, the hate you see on the forums is not indicative of the actual consensus of people's opinion of the game. Unfortunately, Bioware and EA are basing the community's opinion of the game solely on the forums.

Hmm comparisons to WoW?

WoW is the most successful MMO in the business right now, whether you love it or hate it. You have to acknowledge it is the elite and thats why so many people compares MMOs to WoW.

I do not know why lots of player left this game. But Iam old fan for AOC and AOC was alone for me so far. So thank you Bioware this game. Now i got my second mmo what iam able to enjoy. And I would like to ask you never give up your way. You are the best firm in rpg I believe it really. I bought a mmo and get a solo game too in the price! I think it is the best mmo for the solo player who want to try ou first mmo or want to do first steps in a mmo. AOc has a good solo part too and it give back the feeling from a dark world. but SWTROR is perfect too and i see Bioware put his heart in this game fully again after DAO. So I want to ask pls never follow the way that for example Bethesda do!!! You are the best!!!!!
in my opinion guess difficult is not enough but guess they want full game be discoverable for solo players too so i dont think it would be possible to do better. So i can tell really HUGE THANKS AGAIN BIOWARE!!! A old fan of Bioware.

I think that the hate comes from the fact that SWTOR is an easy target. Personally, I love the game but the honest truth is that it didn't live up to its own hype. Or, to put it more aptly, it didn't live up to the hype a lot of the players had before the launch. SWTOR is a very cool game but it's far from perfect and never had the chance to become the "WoW-killer" some thought it was going to be. And people who are disillusioned love to hate, and the Internet is the place where this can be done with ease.

At launch it was pretty much exactly as advertised by EA and BioWare. It was player expectations that built up all that hype and when it didn't do exactly as they wanted, they raged, ranted and left.

Also: there are so many disgruntled SWG Veterans out there bad-mouthing TOR its almost ridiculous. Occasionally it seems like they don't have anything better to do with their time.

It's too bad that only the people who complain make it to these forums. Satisfied players play their characters on the servers, hang with people in their guilds and have fun. It's kind of bad that you don't see all the good moments people share in this game....
